October Favourites

I think its about time I sat down and did my first ever monthly favourites, that's right I've never done one before, god knows why as I see plenty of them around.

First off is the Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing gel, I only re-discovered this last month, I got this with a gift box set for Christmas last year, I got a moisturiser which I didn't like and a few little extra pieces and this was one of them, I forgot how much I love this stuff, Ive been using this every morning in the shower, you only need a pee size amount, you lather it up in your hands, apply to the face then rinse, and my face feels super clean, oh and you can't forget how soft it leaves your face too. I used to take this on holiday as its handy being a travel sized product.

Next is a pretty impressive foundation, Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hour with comfort serum, I only picked this up last month and I've been using this pretty much most days and while I going to work, this is my first time using a Rimmel foundation and its amazing, if you love medium to full coverage like me, then you will love this, if you have dry skin I don't think this will be ideal for you, it dries quite quickly and turns very matte, but maybe I'm wrong and you could find nothing wrong with it, I'm combination so I have no problem and I think it turns away some of the oiliness on my face which is a bonus, and I'm not sure if its my primer but this seems to last forever on my skin, I can do a full 8 hours at work, go home and my foundation hasn't budged.

I'm not really a fan of body lotions, I think I'm just lazy having to apply it haha, I got this Korres BodyMilk in my Birchbox ages ago, I though oh great another lotion, so I just chucked it in my draws, now its getting colder outside, my skin gets a lot dryer mainly on my legs and body so that's when I have to moisturise now and then, a little goes a long way and spreads really far as its really liquidy, it smells amazing and definitely helps my skin.

You've got to love Barry M's nail polishes, there range is pretty amazing, Its she shade 273 Raspberry, I'm wearing this shade all the time now its winter, its that perfect shade, that goes with anything.

I don't see these Collection Cream Puffs being raved about enough, Ive got the shade cotton Candy 1, I've been wearing this everyday and I bloooomin LOVE it, I've even gone and brought the other two colours which is a nude and coral, they can be quite drying on the lips, but it doesn't bother me as its not noticeable, I'm actually thinking of doing a review on them soon :)

Hope you enjoyed my monthly favourites let me know what you've been loving this month
